if Puig is going to be starting every day, then which one of Kemp/Crawford/Ethier is he replacing? clearly right now Ethier isn't hitting, but I look at what he has done before this season and I think he can get back to that level.
do the Dodgers just bench Ethier and play Puig? can they trade Ethier? this is his contract details from rotoworld.2012: $10.95 million, 2013: $13.5 million, 2014: $15.5 million, 2015: $18 million, 2016: $18 million, 2017: $17.5 million, 2018: $17.5 million vesting option ($2.5 million buyout), 2019: Free agent
Puig has a bright future. but if he isn't going to be playing every day, wouldn't they be better to give him regular playing time back in the minors?
I just don't believe they would sit Puig. They'd give Crawford, Kemp, and Ethier 5 starts a week to keep Puig in the lineup 6. Again, it's just my opinion, but I just don't see other OFs on the roster playing every day or close to it at the expense of Puig playing every day or close to it. And this is all assuming that there is a significant chunk of the season during which all 4 of these guys are healthy, whereas only 2 of them are healthy right now.
